Discussion Forums are accessed using a Single-Sign-On configuration that allows portal users to logon using a single accountname/password.

The are 2 primary authentication policies for accessing discussion forums:

1) Auto-enroll using portal login name
2) User initiated enroll using a provided registration wizard


Option 1 is more convenient for end users, but presents a privacy concern when email addresses are used as portal account names.

For example, a portal account name of joe.smith@acme.com would reveal the persons email address if "joe.smith@acme.com" were used as the discussion forum username. A username "jsmith" would help protect the end users privacy.
